The commitment of Wai Yip Law to marry an Asian Catholic, a conviction that grows out mainly due to his faith, and partly due to his conflicting Chinese and American values, means he is still single in his early thirties. Alone in New Jersey without friend or family, his search for a companion leads him to a fateful acquaintance with Irene. A Vietnamese girl who has had a nightmarish relationship with her first love, Irene's bitter memory causes her to feel insecure with men, to the point of being emotionally cruel. Pushed ever deeper into the tumultuous entanglement with Irene, Wai Yip turns mentally unstable and depressed, eventually to the brink of attempting suicide. Saved from taking his own life by a freak accident, he becomes obsessed with revenge, using it as a pretext to abandon his own morality along the path of a twisted vengeance .
